A Dress For Winter

 Hello Ladies on this grey Monday in Montreal
The snow is all gone  I guess the Snow Queen will be retiring for a bit but i promise she will come back!

Because le tapis blanc disapeared i had a chance to shoot outside this weekend - This a dress i thrifted this summer and it has been winterized, don't you like to remix your summer clothes in the winter?  I do!


How was your weekend by the way? Mine was quiet but nice - It is hockey season, my son has ongoing invitation every Saturday - he watches the hockey with Mr. D's son - We provide the food and they scream and shout in the living room - Mr. D and I stay in the kitchen, much safer and quiet!

On Sunday we took are PCs and drove to this new cafe in the neighborhood - The place is very popular, It has WIFI that is why it is so popular! and the latte is excellent and the sugary treats are to die for! Have a look at the place....It is packed with hipsters, artists, students...the neighborhood is changing alright!

The pics were taken with my Ipod


On Friday i met Mr. D downtown - i had to drop forms at the insurance company - we had a stroll and stopped at a camera shop, I would like a 35mm- 50mm f1.4 lense for my camera - it takes sharp pictures of a subject and leaves the rest blury- do you think i might it for X-Mas?



After the camera shop we stopped for  a glass of wine at Alexandre downtown - On the way to the car we stopped at Le Pain Doré to get some baguettes, and saw those cute eatable Christmas characters - they were made of Marzipan and chocolate Mr. D bought 2 for the grand kids!


I was wearing -

Jacket - Thrifted at Rambroux et Cie
Dress - Thrifted at Renaissance Montreal
Thights - H&M
Shoes - H&M
The necklace is a gift from Venise Italy

Go see the Fab Ladies at Patti's

See you soon Fabulous Ladies et je vous fais la bise

sacramento said...

My dear Ariane, you are such an inspiration, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
I adore your dress and the clash of blue and hot pink tights, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
IWANT your blue shoes.
You are magic, my dear friend.
The blogger Christmas Swap is out. Check who is your partner.

That dress is wonderful and should be worn all year round, it would be a shame not to.
That cafe looks amazing as does Le Pain Dore.
Skype? That would be such fun!
Loads of love xxxxxxxxxx

The treats look delicious and you look fabulous. I like to mix my seasons too, and wear summery dresses in the winter. I love your bright tights!

Thanks for linking up with Visible Monday (I fixed the link for you - I hope you don't mind) : >

Dress is so pretty, love the print! And that coat is wondreful, that color is great! You look amazing, as usual!


Ms. Givens said...

I hope you get that camera. I use my daughters G9 but she is always telling me to invest in my own camera. ;)

pastcaring said...

I agree, that dress is far too pretty to wear only in summer, I like wearing things layered up when it's colder too. Summer dresses with a cardigan, over tights and boots or trousers work well, I think.
Oh my word, that cafe looks fabulous, I wouldn't know which treat to choose, they all look so good! xxxxx

Pam @ over50feeling40 said...

I love how you styled this picture with your tights and the colors on the wall...very creative!! I also would love to visit the new cafe!!
I am so excited to be your Christmas partner for Sacramento's swap!!

What I love so much is the juxtaposition of the shoes with this dress--Its what makes it so you!
I also love the effect of the blurry background--did you know you can do those effects in Photoshop? So much cheaper than a new lens....altho I am pining for a new camera...I was a good girl this year!
I have my post for this upcoming thurs--and its about mixing summer stuff! Great minds think alike~

Helga! said...

Darling,that frock is SO pretty! I wear the same clothes all year round,and just add extra cardis in Winter! So I should call it "winterising"!!!
marzipan looks incredible,but o it makes me feel ill!!!

Mongs said...

Love how you remix a summer dress into your fall outfit, this look is quirky, chic and playful, I love the colors and the layering, you did a fabulous job!

Emmett Katherine said...

The bright blues in the dress go nicely with the red tights :)

O D Y S S E Y said...

great color sense, as always.
i wear most of my wardrobe year-round, especially because we don't have distinct seasons here. it's either hot as hell (for most of the year), warm and humid, or cool. so i'm learning to incorporate layers when the need arises.

The print on that dress is so fun!

Marcia B. said...

wow looks like such a yummy weekend, your dress looks great and I absolutely love your necklace. What is the name of the cafe?

Sheila said...

That dress is lovely - I love how you remixed pieces to make it work for winter in Montreal!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I really appreciate it! So nice to meet another Canadian (I'm in Victoria, but I have visited your fair city, many, many years ago!).

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Yay for winter-fying a summer frock!!! And what a glorious combo with the pink tights and blue suede brothel creepers!! I particularly love the creamy jacket that's the same length as your frock - what a feast for the eyes you are my lovely! The cafe looks like the kind of place to settle in on a very cold snowy day with lots of lovely coffee, goodies to eat, laptop, books and someone to kiss now and then:)) xoxo

The Attic People said...

I think I have worn them once or twice - but shy away from there because here it's always summer and people look at me funny.
